 I don't like to name people on a public site because they may have kids or other family members on here but I am happy to give the name in a personal message and I all I said about showsteers is if you want to know who it is just go thereto find the website and its a breeder from Texas and my picture is right there to see. That does not mean everyone one showsteers is a liar but when your looking at calves for sale just keep an eye for that picture. I am sure the majority of breeders on there are honest and I have personally bought from some of them. So I don't think everyone is going to think they are all liars and that is one reason I posted the picture. Just be CAREFUL when buying a calf when you can not look at in person.

Nothing would surprise me that they do! I bought one from them  and that ended it for for me.  And he went to the salebarn. They do alot of talking and don't raise anything! Everyone around these parts know them and know how they are and what they are doing. Sorry about your pic being stolen. Most of us around central Texas know what the truth is.

Thanks! It's crazy what some people will do. I am still shocked about it. To top it off its not even a great picture of the calf I have better pictures.lol What some people will do to make money. Its a shame they don't care at all about the people they are scamming.

SKF I knew you weren't implying anything about Showsteers or any other breeders.

I think it is respectable the way you handled this situation

Bid on the calf then when you go pick it up show the sheriff a pic.

Fraud. Maybe eliminate you bidding on it but.call the sheriff.

Went to showsteers.com found the fake pics in 2 minutes.  You can tell those arent his because there all differnt pictures and have already been for sale this fall. I can tell you what sale a few were in this fall. People these days.

 I noticed that the backgrounds were different on the pictures and I don't think in the fall in Texas they have nice green palm trees. lol  Amazing what some people will do.

I can promise you we don't have green trees and very little green grass.

Please report him the Facebook so he cannot market through them.  "You will not use Facebook to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory."  http://www.facebook.com/legal/terms.  People like him are leaches and no public forum should have him on it.

Looks like it is a pasture sale... so it is the old bait and switch.Get some one coming or calling to see this calf but take another one home instead.  I don't see any on-line sale references, that's a plus I hope on-line auctions have some sort of standards on who they will promote and sale for. If they start letting shady deals go thru then I don't think it would take long for them to loose all confidence with consumers and go under.  JMO

I saw an Eye Candy steer on there as well as 3 others that were sold on a Colorado sale over a month ago. I know for a fact that the Eye Candy steer didnt go to Texas.......

Tonight I was just looking at several different cattle web sites and I as I was looking at this one site in Texas I see a familiar picture under calves for sale. It is my heifer!! This is a heifer born this fall at my barn and is still at my barn in Florida! I like to post pictures of our calves on Facebook because its a great way to reach potential customers but I have found out it is also a great place for people to steal your pictures for their own use. Lesson learned always watermark your photos and never trust what you see on the internet when buying calves! 

I had trouble with someone using my photos without permission on Facebook also.  If the person has posted the picture on their facebook page without your permission all you have to do is report it to facebook and they will remove the picture or make the person remove the picture.  As for the person posting your pictures via anyother avenue I would call them out on that site as well.  Go get 'em.  People like this need their balls busted!
